To commemorate the centenary of the outbreak of WW1, the BFI National Archive has restored one of the finest films of the British silent era – a thrilling reconstruction of two decisive naval battles from the early stages of the conflict. Filmed on real battleships supplied by the Admiralty, this monumental production was shot mostly at sea near Malta, with the Scilly Isles a convincing stand-in for the Falklands. You will even see shots of Devonport Dockyard.
This stirring film is presented with a newly commissioned score by Plymouth composer Simon Dobson who will introduce his work.
